    • Better group exploration

      I'm having a hard time finding quality groups.
      You should have some sort of visual keyword search- so if I search "interiors" I could see some of the same things as if I'd searched "rooms." Or if I search "interiors," you could just suggest that I look up the keyword "rooms" as well.

      Really I think it would be great if you could set it up like Pinterest. So, say I find a photo I like, why not show me more like it?
      ("Like it" using differing categories - e.g show pictures taken in the same location, using similar color…

        When using Flickr with my iPad it either won't connect or connects but then freezes and shuts down. Is this only happening to me???

          • Lacking capabilities

            I haven't spent much time with the latest release, but in general, the app pretty much is useless. You can't do half of the things you can do on a desktop website, and if you try to do things on an iOS browser the mobile pages are similarly hampered. Things like reorganizing photos into groups, comments and settings while uploading.

            The best flickr app out there used to be flickStackr, but you (expletive) people shut the guy down.

            So, I actually decided not to renew my very long standing flickr paid subscription because without that app, flickr is too much…

            • Backwards facility

              There appears to be no way of finding a way backwards, if the application quits there is no way of finding where you were.

                • UI needs a TON of work!

                  Sorry guys, but it Sucks.

                  Issues:
                  - not at all intuitive. And I'm a tech startup CEO!
                  - camera roll on iOS devices simply doesn't update properly. I had an image in my photo album I wanted to upload to Flickr and I couldn't see it in the camera roll!

                    I am deleting my yahoo account and you have given me no option to login to Flickr separately; so Google photos here I come.

                    • All photos not visible

                      Like many others in the forum, older photos have fallen off my public stream - while the total page count of my account never goes higher than 9 - the majority of user pages increment properly.
                      My larger concern is that issues are never addressed by staff - forum users provide helpful information but never are issues directly addressed by Flickr staff.
                      I have considered a Pro account for years - but without customer support I feel it would be wasted money.
                      Just getting this off my chest as I have serious doubts that anyone actually works for this site…

                      • Indicator for number of photos online in app?

                        In order to see how many photos are online one has to check out the webGUI or login with a mobile browser. It will easier to see how many photos you have when not logging in (select profile and the number of photos and likes are easy to see). Would it be possible to have a mention for the number of photos too in the Flickr apps for both Android and iOS?

                          While using the iPad app and while being in someone's image gallery the only place you find the Back button is on top of the page. When you've gone too far down the page how else can you go back?

                                    I'd like to see some changes to the iOS app, similar to the Organize feature on the desktop, that would allow us to add tags to multiple photos and photos to multiple groups vs. one group at a time.

                                      What the **** did you do to the iOS app? Most of the time I now have to tap "continue as {username}". And because of this, the 3D Touch feature to quickly upload a photo is now mostly useless because it nearly always says I have to sign in, and the option to upload is not present.
